This paper is a continuation of the previous Carnicom work titled ’TIME’ (dated July 24, 2003). In that paper it was determined that the rotational speed of the earth had increased around late 1998 and that increase was a significant deviation from historical norm. One addition noted in this present paper is that another 0.5 seconds was added to the rotational speed of the earth, or Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) between 09:30 MDT on August 16, 2003 and 12:00 MDT on August 17, 2003. This is significant and begs for more research to be done by others to monitor these changes. A second update to the original ’TIME’ paper details that a drift rate analysis of the independent time standard that has been developed now shows a departure of 1.5 seconds over a period of 57 days since the monitoring of time standards began. This indicates the detection of another 0.5 second additional departure since Aug 17 2003. A projection of the current time departure rate is estimated at 9.5 seconds per year; a departure of this magnitude is phenomenal in magnitude if these observations bear out in the future. A one second departure (approximately) over a year period is expected based upon the historical record. A careful monitoring of geophysical events and changes is recommended based upon this preliminary report, as unusual changes in time will likely correlate with significant geophysical energy releases.
Basing concern on a hypothesis forwarded to him by an as of now unidentified source, Clifford Carnicom investigates the possibility that the aerosol programs are being used to change the rotational speed of the earth. This hypothesis purports the onset of major geophysical changes and life extinction cycles in the foreseeable and upcoming decades. The impact upon the earth and life from such events is extraordinary and beyond the realm of consideration for many people. A quote by Carl Sagan brings the possibility of the above claims in line with reality: “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” The hypothesis that was passed to Carnicom states that there is an attempt to use the aerosols to increase the rotational speed of the earth. Recognition that the onset of heavy aerosol spraying started late 1998 into early 1999, Carnicom chose to look at yearly earth rotational data from the United States Naval Observatory and the International Earth Rotation Service (Atomic time and actual rotational speed of the earth) to ascertain any change in earth rotational speed. Coincidentally, there is an unexpected sustained increase of the earth’s rotation, starting in late 1998/early 1999, when compared to many years of historical record. Whether this change in rotation has been induced artificially will need to be researched and determined. Of significant note here should be that the reader understand that the records of the earth rotation from the United States Naval Observatory and the International Earth Rotation Service were abruptly discontinued to the public.
